Proteins of the GFP (green fluorescent protein) family demonstrate a great spectral and phylogenetic diversity. However, there is still an intense demand for red-shifted GFP-like proteins in both basic and applied science. To obtain GFP-like chromoproteins with red-shifted absorption, we performed a broad search in blue-coloured Anthozoa species. We(More)
BACKGROUND Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) cloned from jellyfish Aequorea victoria and its homologs from corals Anthozoa have a great practical significance as in vivo markers of gene expression. Also, they are an interesting puzzle of protein science due to an unusual mechanism of chromophore formation and diversity of fluorescent colors. Fluorescent(More)
The possibility of enhancing heterologous gene expression in mammalian cells by the introduction of an intron in 3′ untranslated region (UTR) was investigated. To this end, a fragment of human betaglobin gene with intron 2 and flanked exon regions was introduced into the vector-encoding green fluorescent protein TagGFP2 after the TagGFP2 stop-codon (Int+).(More)
